Why not just call it Ska instead of all the genre tags you used?

Because it's not Ska. It's not Reggae either but it's definitely influenced by that

They're not really Ska anymore, their previous albums sure. But not this one.

Man in typical 311 fashion some AMAZING songs and a few BAD ones. My only gripe is the fact that the last half of the album is just such a return to form its amazing. It makes the rest pale in comparison. The problem with this album is it seems they really over did the reggae aspects. The first half of the album has way to many "amber" or love song type songs. They are usually very good at album sequencing which is why i was sort of surprised when i kept going to the next track and it was again a reggae type song. Usually the band has 1 or 2 of these songs and the rest is the amazing hybrid of high energy,positive rockers. If they took out a few island suns and added 2 more face in the wind or days of 88 this would of been one of my fav 311 albums. I know people loved stereolythic which i thought was ok. It had a few gems but the good songs on Mosaic really gave me confidence that this band can still write great rock tunes. It sounds like a perfect blend of all there albums as i hear hints of evolver,transistor,soundsysem. Some songs id go as far as to bet they were originally demos from those early albums. Like I said tho, for me the good songs on the album are so good it makes up for the bad (till the citys on fire) They are better than the best songs from the last album. One last gripe to end my rant...does anyone else feel like Sa's rap skills have gone severely downhill? I think back to music and grassroots and he used to have a great flow. A lot of is rap parts feel forced, uninspired and plain cheesy which I know he has always been but not to this extent. Like the verse of perfect mistake...make you feel like a child again and again! just curious if anyone else thought this. Anyone Enjoy guys!
